Rava (Semolina) khichdi

Usually we make rava upma, rava dosa etc but this is rava khichdi which is a bit different and is very delicious as a snack , for breakfast or you can make it in a jiffy even when you are expecting someone who visits you suddenly. We have it very often and this is my daughter's favourite.Rava actually is not harmful and is healthy and easy to prepare also. I shall take you on a small journey to go through my recipe.

Rava (semolina) -1 cup
Onion -1 medium sized
Green chillies -4-5
Fresh green peas (muttar) -1oogms
Tomato -1-medium sized
Ghee -2 tblsps
Curry leaves - few
Water - 3-4 cups
Salt - as required
Coriander leaves - for garnishing

Take ghee ia pan, add mustard seeds,jeera,curry leaves and green chillies.
When mustard seed splutters add onions and fry well then add the tomato and stir fry for some time
Add the rava and roast. Add some salt and mix well. put the green peas in it.
Add boiling water to the rava and mix well to make sure there are no lumps.
close it with a lid , and after it is cooked till the consistency becomes thick, garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
This dish can be had with tomato onion chutney or coconut chutney. Serve it hot


  1. It looks great!! I have this occasionally for breakfast! But isnt it just like upma?

  2. Hi Avanika, thanks for visiting my blog.It is a little like upma but with slight variations in the items. In upma we season it with dals lie urad dal,hing may be a little chana dal but we don't do the same in khichdi.Its vey much softer and smoother than upma with a lot of ghee.

  3. Yummy breakfast recipe. Looks delicious.
